Pros: decided your own hours
Cons: not enough pay
This is a very good company, I love working for them . The only thing is that the pay is very low in rural area's. In the big cities you have more stores therefore more hours and pay.
The company is good to it's employees really like working for them.

Demanding and detailed.
Die Clerk (Former Employee), Osceola, ARJuly 14, 2014
Pros: set hours and available overtime. breaks.
Cons: if coworker was working at a slow pace, you would have to wait to sometime use those dies or machines.
Dies had to be correct with not one mistake or it could foul up a whole shipment of greeting cards. Learned to be meticulous when inspecting dies either being sent to the floor or being returned after a job had been run. Management only showed up when an error had either been made or perceived. Co-workers were cliques. Hardest-details. Most enjoyable – more... was seeing the sample cards after they'd been run. – less

Merchandiser (Former Employee), Macon. GaJuly 2, 2014
Cons: unorganized
This company is very unorganized, at least, where I am. The online training is long, boring, and confusing. Supervisors aren't really there to provide assistance when it's needed.

Card Merchandiser (Former Employee), Cleveland, OHJune 27, 2014
Pros: feeling good about my ability to upkeep clean work places which made profits due to that
maintained all card merchandise in various stores. Was able to be creative and set up merchandise in an appealing way. Spend many hours setting and resetting stock and merchandise. Enjoyed traveling to various stores and meeting new people. Most enjoyable part of the job was the satisfaction when looking around after servicing the stores. Hardest part – more... of the job was pulling all merchandise out of the stock rooms to assigned part of the store then taking it back there. – less

Large Company that does not view their employees as a priority
Part-Time Merchandiser (Former Employee), Cleveland, OHJune 23, 2014
Cons: poor management, little assistance from immediate supervisor, no good feedback at all
early morning start time, servicing at least 6 stores a day, and that is an easy day.

I resigned from American Greetings, because as a part-time merchandiser, I was not eligible for medical benefits, and not only was I not able to receive benefits, American Greetings reduced my hours from 35-50 per week, to under 20. This not only caused a great salary – more... decrease for me, but it was not cut enough to allow me to qualify for Medicaid. I was unable to get health insurance through Medicaid, and due to the salary decrease, I was unable to afford it on my own as well. – less

Set own hours! Stores a pleasure to work in!
Merchandiser (Former Employee), Brookings, SDJune 21, 2014
Pros: i loved working by myself.
Cons: had to set up new displays the day after a holiday.
This job I set my own hours, when I got to work it was time to check in the boxes and put them were they needed to go to put on display. Sometimes I would need to make room for this stuff so I would tear displays apart and rebuild them. Put everything out on shelves, straightening everything and clean when needed. Management was a phone call away. They – more... stores I worked in had nice employees. The hardest part was lifting the boxes. The most fun part of the job was to set up new displays. – less

part time merchandiser (Former Employee), brooklyn, nyJune 20, 2014
Pros: easy job
Cons: not enough hours
When I started here it was right before thanksgiving so there were a lot of hours to put in. After christmas I had 2 stores to go to for 1.5 hrs each. Thats right 3 hours of work for the whole week. I ended up quitting. They want you to do so much work in very little time or the supervisors complain. This company is very unorganized.

Great place to work.
Regional Loss Prevention Manager (Former Employee), New YorkJune 18, 2014
Pros: work-life balance.
Cons: compensation was a bit below market value
I enjoyed my time at AG. It is no longer proprietary but it was then. Work-Life balance was off the charts. Company culture was great. Work was in a completely autonomous environment. Management made good decisions to keep the company viable and as a result people are still employed today.

Merchandiser (Current Employee), Fair Lawn, NJMay 24, 2014
American Greetings is a major card and party products manufacturer.
They provide excellent training and support. Their products are of the highest quality. I have learned to work closely with store managers and interact with customers on a weekly basis. In addition, I work independently and receive support from my area supervisor when needed.

Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee), Moreno Valley, CAMay 16, 2014
While working here I had a second job for 90% of the time. It is a fairly easy job to manage. This is a nice place to work and keeps you on your toes. They were pretty strict on making sure the store was clean and organized, including both front of the store and stock room. Definitely a job for people who cant sit still.

Stressful, panic-inducing, not worth the trouble
Sorter Room (Former Employee), Osceola, ARMay 12, 2014
Pros: nice pay, workable hours
Cons: bad co-workers, hectic work environment
A typical work-day was stressful. I'll admit that I learned a lot, but it was killing me. My managers liked me because I always worked my hardest. But, I can't say the same about my co-workers. Most of them were lazy and selfish and were hoping to get paid without doing any work. Most of the the jobs I did were hard and very fast-paced, which caused – more... me to freak out and have migraines. But, some of the jobs I got to work alone and work at my nice, steady pace. – less

Great company to work for
Part Time Merchandiser (Former Employee), Washington, NCMay 6, 2014
Pros: flexible schedule
Cons: hours are a little low at times
Typical day at work involved checking card stock, replenishing shelves and setting new merchandise.

Learned theres more to it then just putting out cards, they have a neat system they use to make sure everything is properly displayed.

Management and co-workers are very nice and helpful. You have a question and they will answer it or find out for you.

Hardest – more... part of the job was lifting the boxes and that wasn't even hard unless you may have trouble lifting heavier boxes.

Able to set up your own schedule and work without someone breathing down your neck all the time. – less
